I just went fishing at the Florida keys, and I catch jacks, bluefish, grunts, cuberas and more. But my goal was to bring a shark home, I was fishing next to a bridge at the beach I used as bait a frozen mullet that i bought from a bait shop. I hooked the mullet with a wire and two hooks on. I throw it with out a weight and far as my rod can. I wait about an hour and a half, and nothing came. Please could you help me telling me what i did wrong or what i need to improve? But I think that if I get a kayak and i go farther, and throw my bait there I will get something.
I am thinking about going to Taylorsville lake this year near Louisville Kentucky in the summer time. I used to go with a Kayak and camp out in cove with a trot line loaded with chicken livers in which I had moderate success. But because the park rules say you cant camp out what should I do for shore fishing for catfish. It seams like it takes about 30 hooks of chicken livers to catch one large catfish in this lake over night. I dont want to set up a trot line in the day time because I think its illegal. Can you think of any effective ways to catch catfish in an all day trip from sunrise to sundown only using less than five poles off the banks on foot. I normally use chicken liver and like I said its not all the very effective and fairly expensive too. Im in college right now so I am on a budget. 500 bucks is the most I can spend on summer fishing gear.
You have a kayak, a rod & reel, a bait well, and a cooler. You’ve just been given a gift card to your local sporting good store for $70. What kind of tackle would you buy? (Lures, Leaders, Hooks, etc.)
The target would be Red Fish and Trout in Galveston, TX.
